    Yes, this is an opportunity to begin talking. However, let's not be overly dramatic about the topic or the possibilities. Peace will come to the region when there is educational transformation in the Arab community. How many individuals have recently been caught trying to bomb a building in the United States the last few days? It's the same story in the Middle East, only they have done it, and unfortunately, this is the priority on the minds of many young Arabs. Unfortunately, is a sad situation. But those of us who do not live there, cannot force two people to leave their anger and suddenly become buddies over night. The hate that Arabs have towards Jews is not so easy to overcome. When Iran stops supporting and funding the Hamas, and Hamas becomes a force willing to live in peace, then there is a future to communication which will bring about change, tolerance, acceptance and will to let live. The peaceful songs need to also be chanted and sung by neighbors who surround Israel.
